Hi All,

Im getting frustrated because I cant figure out the right google search on learning to shoot products with film or video.... Its always comes up with videos or pages about videos of photography....

Anyway... I was wondering if anyone knew of any books or tutorials on shooting still life/product sequences? Preferably books... ei Coke being pored into a glass... stuff like that.

Thanks for your help!

Try searching for "Shooting pack shots" — what you're talking about is usually referred to as the "pack shot" (sometimes more unkindly as the "money shot".

Thanks Stuart!

I spent so much time trying to find that... Its funny that such a common and necessary technique is not outlined in more production books.

Thanks again...
